Ginuwine and Claudia Jordan kicked out of Alabama mall.
Claudia Jordan of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" fame made the trip to Auburn, AL Friday to see Ginuwine perform at the Opelika Event Center. Her weekend took a sour turn when she and Ginuwine were allegedly kicked out of Auburn Mall within 60 seconds after she refused to remove her sunglasses.
While we don't want to jump to any conclusions, based on the evidence provided by Jordan on her social media accounts coupled with her outrage, it's difficult not to see this as anything but a case of blatant racial profiling on the part of the Auburn Mall security staff. Paul Blart bitchasses.
Also, Ginuwine co-signed her tweets with a retweet so he's standing firm with Claudia on this one. Check out the videos below and see for yourself what went down.
What kind of BS us this?!!!!! This was the second security guard that the other white security guard sent to "handle us" after the first one harassed us 1 minute after we walked thru the door of the AUBURN mall. He followed us demanding I take my sunglasses off. There were no signs stating "sunglasses were prohibited" this was so blatant. I thought it was a joke at first then shit got real.
Never go to the Auburn Mall if you're a minority and you chose to wear sun glasses. Clearly it's against the law if you are black. Meanwhile we saw 2 white women and a white man wearing sunglasses who were not harassed or even approached. There were no signs saying that sun glasses were not allowed. Please do NOT tell me racism is dead. I'm a classy, educated woman with no criminal record simply wanting to shop in the local mall who was harassed by punk ass mall security and police were called. The message is clear- our KIND was not welcomed here and they are willing to use any excuse to get us all the way up outta there. Way to go Auburn Mall!
